The adventure begins.

So following the delivery of our first raspberry pi from RS, unboxed, and using the debian “squeeze” image it was time to see what works out of the box.

Here’s the obligatory output from /proc/cpuinfo

pi@raspberrypi:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
Processor : ARMv6-compatible processor rev 7 (v6l)
BogoMIPS : 697.95
Features : swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp java tls
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 7
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0xb76
CPU revision : 7

Hardware : BCM2708
Revision : 0002
Serial : 000000009a5d9c22

How about adding an FTDI serial adaptor

pi@raspberrypi:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04f2:0402 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd Genius LuxeMate i200 Keyboard
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0403:6001 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

So, how about 1-wire support.

Plugging a DS9490R USB adaptor in

pi@raspberrypi:~/owfs-2.8p14$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 020: ID 04fa:2490 Dallas Semiconductor DS1490F 2-in-1 Fob, 1-Wire adapter
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04f2:0402 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd Genius LuxeMate i200 Keyboard
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Just need to get OWFS working on the RaspberryPi and we should be well on our way.
